Storstrøm bridge, Denmark

The Danish State is currently building the new Storstrøm Bridge between Zealand and Falster. The bridge, which is part of the planned Fehmarn Belt link between Denmark and Germany, has a budget of approx. EUR 560 million and will open for traffic in 2022.

When completed, the bridge will be 3.8 km long. It will replace a badly worn bridge dating back to 1937 and will include a two-lane road, two railway lines and access for both cyclists and pedestrians.

“In this ambitious project, we’re not lifting the deck of the bridge with a floating crane, which is the usual method, but with a lift that is fitted to the finished bridge pillars,” says Niels Gottlieb, project manager at the Danish Road Directorate.

When finished, the Storstrøm Bridge will rest on one single line of pillars, giving it a floating architectonic expression. The deck of the bridge will hang from a pylon, which brings together the 40 sloping cables 100 m over the water.
